Did you know that mandatory MOT testing is to be reintroduced from 1 August 2020?
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, drivers were granted a 6-month exemption from MOT testing in March, to help slow the spread of the virus. However, as restrictions are being eased, all drivers whose car, motorcycle or van is due for an MOT test from 1 August, will be required to get a test certificate to continue driving their vehicle.
MOT tests are important for road safety and ensure that vehicle parts, including tyres, seatbelts, brakes, lights and exhausts, are in proper working order.
Drivers with an MOT due date before 1 August will still receive a 6-month exemption from testing. However, all vehicles must continue to be properly maintained and kept in a roadworthy condition, and people are able to voluntarily get their MOT sooner should they wish, even if they are exempt from the legal requirement. Motorists can be prosecuted for driving an unsafe vehicle.
Even if your vehicle has been granted the 6 month MOT extension, it still needs to be safe on the road. This is important, not just for the safety of the driver and the passengers but also other road users.
